One thought on “Eliana and Booker Pittman – News from Brazil, Bossa Nova (1963)

  1. Zeca's text about this album as was found on loronix:Eliana Pittman is the stepdaughter of the American sax player Booker Pittman. Eliana and Booker performed together for some short time in the 60's. This rare LP, Eliana and Booker Pittman, News from Brazil, Bossa Nova (1963), is one of the few memories zecalouro could found about the time they were together as artists.I do not have much information to present about this LP, what is already known so far is that Tamba Trio takes part on the set and the arrangements are from Gaya. If a Loronixer friend has additional information about this LP, let us know.Better listen to it, a nice Jazz Bossa, very rare, even the cover artwork was difficult to grab.
